Introduction to Cisco XDR Solution

Introduction to Cisco XDR Solution

A solution called Cisco XDR is intended to increase the functionality of Cisco's detection and response products. It may be used by businesses to gather and correlate data from endpoints, servers, networks, cloud resources, and email applications. In order to defend against data loss or breach, it lets teams to analyze, prioritize, hunt down, and address threats. A component of the SecureX security platform is Cisco XDR.

Introduction to Cisco XDR Solution

Enter the World of SecureX

Cisco SecureX is a cloud-native security orchestration platform that links Cisco security services with infrastructure. It is intended to give a uniform user experience that allows access to automation, fosters collaboration, and generates quantitative insights.

  • Cisco Next-Generation Firewall, AnyConnect, Stealthwatch, ISE, Web Security, and Meraki MX are among the network security solutions available. These systems filter traffic, give secure remote access, analytics and threat detection, segmentation, web content filtering, and a secure wide area network.
  • Cisco XDR, Duo, AMP for Endpoints, Email Security, Security Connector, and Meraki SM provide user and endpoint security. These solutions provide for identification controls, the detection and response to threats, the filtering of email content, the filtering of mobile device traffic, and the administration of mobile devices.
  • Cisco Umbrella, Cloudlock, and Stealthwatch Cloud are examples of cloud edge solutions. These systems filter internet traffic, prevent data breaches, and give comprehensive visibility.
  • Cisco Tetration is used for application security. This approach protects workloads, improves visibility, and enables micro-segmentation.

Third Party Integrations with Cisco XDR solution

Cisco XDR works with top third-party suppliers to exchange telemetry, improve interoperability, and give consistent results across vendors and technologies. At wide availability, the first collection of out-of-the-box integrations includes:

  • Crowd Strike Falcon Insight XDR, Cybereason Endpoint Detection and Response, Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR, SentinelOne Singularity, Trend Vision One Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR): Microsoft Defender for Office, Proofpoint Email Protection
  • Check Point Quantum, Palo Alto Networks: Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW). Network Detection and Response (NDR) for Next-Generation Firewalls: Darktrace DETECTTM and Darktrace RESPONDTM, ExtraHop Reveal(x)
  • Microsoft Sentinel Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)

How does Cisco XDR solution works ?

XDR With increased visibility and context into threats, incidents that would not have been handled previously will come to light, allowing security professionals to immediately target and minimize any additional effect, reducing the severity and extent of the assault.

XDR gathers and correlates data from email, endpoints, servers, cloud workloads, and networks to provide insight and context into advanced threats. Threats may then be analyzed, prioritized, tracked down, and remedied to avoid data loss and security breaches.

Whereas EDR increased malware detection over antivirus capabilities, XDR broadens EDR's scope to include more installed security solutions. XDR offers more capabilities than EDR. It employs cutting-edge technology to improve visibility and gather and correlate threat information, as well as analytics and automation to identify existing and future assaults.
